Types of braces

We will be able to create beautiful, straight smiles that you can feel confident in no matter which treatment option you chose. Traditional metal braces can sometimes work faster when it comes to closing gaps in your teeth and aligning them than other treatments might. That can make for shorter overall treatment times. They can also be cost-effective when compared to other options. Today's braces are also more advanced than ever before, with their superior strength, durability and affordability enabling them to withstand the test of time. That's why they remain the top orthodontic treatment method in use after all of the years.

Metal Braces

A Time-Tested Solution

Metal braces have long held a firm place in orthodontic treatment. They are revered for their strength, dependability, and their proven track record in correcting an extensive range of dental and facial irregularities. They owe their effectiveness to their durable stainless-steel brackets and wires, which provide the required pressure to shift teeth into their correct positions over time.

However, the bulky, discomforting metal braces of the past have given way to more sophisticated designs. Today's metal braces have been refined and are now significantly smaller, providing a more comfortable and aesthetically pleasing experience. The smaller brackets are less intrusive, and heat-activated archwires use your body heat to facilitate tooth movement, making the entire process smoother and quicker.

Further advancements have introduced colored elastic bands, giving patients an opportunity to personalize their braces. Especially popular among children and teens, these vibrant colors can make wearing braces a more enjoyable experience.

Despite the rise of more discreet orthodontic solutions, metal braces remain a top choice due to their ability to correct even the most complex orthodontic issues efficiently. Whether it's severe crowding, significant overbite or underbite, or complex malocclusion, metal braces can tackle it all, providing reliable results every time.

Clear Braces

An Elegant, Unobtrusive Solution

In response to patients seeking a more refined orthodontic treatment, clear braces have emerged as an excellent choice. Functionally, they work much like traditional metal braces, using the same system of brackets and wires to move teeth into alignment.

However, the distinct difference lies in their aesthetic appeal. Clear braces feature transparent or tooth-colored ceramic brackets, designed to blend with the natural color of your teeth. This subtle design feature makes them a less noticeable orthodontic solution, offering patients the chance to undergo treatment without the typical metallic look associated with braces.

Clear braces are particularly attractive to teenagers and adults who want to achieve a straighter smile while maintaining a more natural-looking appearance throughout the treatment. They're a great choice for those who are self-conscious about wearing braces or those who want to maintain a professional image.

Despite their less noticeable design, clear braces do not compromise on treatment effectiveness. They are highly capable of addressing a wide range of orthodontic issues, from simple cases of misalignment to more complex malocclusion problems. Their blend of aesthetics and performance make clear braces an appealing choice for many patients at Topsmiles Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics.
